Apple and Swiss clock company reach licensing agreement over iOS 6 interface

Normally when you mention Apple and patent/design infringement in the same article it’s because either Apple is taking another manufacturer to court, or because Cupertino itself is being accused of stealing patent designs. It’s refreshing to hear that in this story that Apple and SBB (Swiss national railway) have come to a licensing agreement over the use of the iconic clock face within the iPad’s clock app. It’s great to see that the two companies came to an agreement quickly, and according to a SBB spokesperson,  “an amicable” one and fair compensation.
